The AWF was set up by Mitch Winehouse following the tragic passing of his daughter Amy on 23rd July 2011, aged just 27, whose music touched the lives of millions across the globe.
The foundation, launched on September 14th 2011 on what would have been Amy's 28th birthday, has been set up in Amy's memory to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people and to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
BMA Director David Courtney said:
"We are thrilled and proud to be associated the AWF and to support and assist in raising the profile for such a worthy cause especially one that has great relevance with the ongoing drug culture embedded in the city"s young population."
Amy's mother Janis and brother Richard will be attending the event to present one of the awards.
'The Brights' have really struck a chord with music fans across the city having received in excess of 5,000 votes for this year's nominees.
The event will be hosted by Juice 107.2 fm
presenter Guy Lloyd
and will feature live performances from the band & solo artist nominees plus guest presenters.
